Unrequited Love

Gabus (Silk Hope) is still an admirer from afar, pining for his unattainable love (See McLean Abuse).  He sent off his semi-annual love letter to the object of his affection and received this in return:

Hi Jack,
Still holding onto it!
But, good to know you're still out there!
Nina


Yeah, he's still out there and now he will be moping around for a week or two until the yearning passes again until next year. Hopefully he has shelved the idea of mugging Ms. Nina and stealing her bicycle - one of those ideas that seems brilliant at the time, but in hindsight prove to be unimaginably foolhardy. People sometimes do crazy things in the name of love.

I've read all the comments from the first post on this subject. This is more like lust for the maddeningly unobtainable, rather than love.

I've been tempted to pick it out from under him. Use my charms on the young lass you know.

No Moping here I'll just go ride the McLean's I have. Besides I had a damn fine conversation today with the other "M" in my life. Mr. Dave Moulton.

BTW why do all my favorite bikes (Frames) begin with "M"? McLean, Moulton, Merz, Masi, Singer, Tesch, Galmozzi. They all start with "M" don't they. The "M" is for Money.

I wonder if this gal realizes that her bike has created a cult following?

Gunnar Berg said...

You have her email address.

There's a story here, just waiting to be written. It's a cross between the Bicycle Thief, and the Velveteen Rabbit.

Silk Hope said...

Yes I do have her email. See might be some CIO with Goldman Sachs. She'll try to take down your site.

It'll be a hell of a story after Berg cuts loose the charm. One I'm looking forward to reading.

Gunnar Berg said...

I gotta lot of charm. I've been keeping it bottled up for 40 years.

Silk Hope said...

That's where you've been keeping it.
